The Cubs ended their 108 year World Series victory drought, and their 71 year World Series appearance drought with a stunning win over the Cleveland Indians in Game 7 of the 2016 World Series. The Cubs had a 5-1 lead in the 5th inning, but the Indians refused to roll over and play dead. Against 105mph throwing Aroldis Chapman the Indians stormed back in the 8th to tie it up 6-6.
